over this country. >> the democratic senate majority leader harry reid says he supports the second amendment as well as universal background checks but he is not going to let the nra get in his way just because they resist it doesn't mean. we have special interest groups that come in and complain about things we don't listen to them -- we will listen to them and make the right decision. >> reid says the senate might soon debate assault weapons ban. something congressman woman gabriel giffords husband argued for today. >> i spent 2 a 5 years in the military. i know the value of having an assault weapon. it's to kill a lot of people very quickly. i think they are way too readily available. i think in time we will be able to address those issues. >> wayne lappier from the nra said today forcing existing laws would go a long way in reducing gun violence so would rounding up gangs in places like chicago. harris? >> peter, thank you. a man on vacation hand gliding in florida when something went very wrong. it's our top story as we go across america. florida. police say the man from illin
